Man in the Moon~by Paul F. Lenzi



Man in the Moon


“Man in the Moon” by Adam Pitschke

it’s all there in his face

disappointment etched deep

barren hollows of light

cut by blue shades of dark

giving features their fame

sleepless sentinel

witness to eons of moments

unchangeably formed

from my seasons of sin

an empathic astronomy

given in portrait of pain

he was once of my species

a brother abruptly broken away

in the age of the chaos

cast into the ether

affixed to my gravity

nonplussed but watchful

inured to his exile

nourished by nothing but

slow-flowing syrup of time

never sure of remorse

for himself or for me

inasmuch as we both

bear the burdens of guilt

that built history
